Museum of Croatian Tourism

museum croatian tourism opatija

Opatija has become the home of the Croatian Museum of Tourism.

This newly opened Museum is housed in the Villa Angiolina that contains permanent as well as temporary exhibitions.

The first floor of the Villa Angiolina features a two-part permanent exhibition.

One is dedicated to Opatija as the cradle of Croatian tourism, while the second part offers an overview of the history of tourism in Croatia. It has all been presented with settings, documents, old photos, postcards and other exhibits.

The staircase features the story of the Villa Angiolina itself, the first villa in Opatija, while the ground floor has retained its current function.

The Museum of Tourism of Croatia also collects data on all relevant sources and potential museum exhibits, and the goal of the institution is to create a system for the evaluation of museum material and the creation of a database.

The museum is also the reference centre for the logging of data on tourism related museum material.

    I would like to know if the Hotel PRaga in Lapad which my parents stayed oat in 1936 still exists?

    Does it have another name now. We want to visit it when we come to Dubrovnik in May.

    Thank you.
